State-of-the-art and smart
The LAB7 facility itself incorporates cutting-edge features, from a smart management system called “INGINE8” developed in-house, to the deployment of nonmetallic materials in its construction. Recycled rubber from discarded tires contributes to more durable asphalt on its roadways, while its distinctive architecture incorporates open spaces to promote collaboration - and its adaptable systems take into account future technological advances to enable ongoing upgrades.
Features of INGINE8 promote safety, scalability, and creativity, to help LAB7 deliver on its promise to support innovation and growth. One component, for instance, is a smart fire evacuation system, which utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting technology to isolate hazardous areas, in case of an emergency, and visually guide occupants to the nearest and safest exits. Another feature will also incorporate an access control component that takes advantage of the building's advanced systems, allowing innovators seamless and around-the-clock access to the lab's resources.
